Event description

Description

Event Details:

Want to hear from the experts on how to improve diversity in your workplace? Want to ask the burning questions from our expert panel on what diversity and inclusion means or what the future holds?

Then this event is perfect for you. We have gathered a panel of experts from the public, private and charity sector to come and answer your questions on Diversity and Inclusion – no topic is bared so hopefully we’ll be in for a lively debate.

If you have questions you would like to submit for the panel please put these in the comments box on Eventbrite or contact the organisers before the night. You’ll also have the opportunity to put your question forward on the evening where we have time.
